ORI AND THE WILL OF THE WISPS

This came as lit­tle sur­prise given the suc­cess of Ori And The Blind For­est, but did they have to name it af­ter a 1980s TV show whose TV-faced an­tag­o­nist still gives us the wil­lies? Per­haps it’s an ap­pro­pri­ate choice for the se­quel to a game whose ethe­real Gareth Coker score and Ghi­bli-style whimsy be­lied some of­ten in­fu­ri­at­ingly pun­ish­ing level de­sign, which was only mildly tem­pered by the abil­ity to drop your own respawn point on the fly. Ex­pect more of the same here, al­beit in 4K with HDR sup­port on PC and Xbox One X – though if Moon Stu­dios hasn’t learned its les­son, and gives us an­other hair-tear­ingly dif­fi­cult level like the orig­i­nal’s Ginso Tree sec­tion, there’ll be hell to pay.
